Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) is using the congressional bully pulpit to rally support for his wife's dance career. The Ohio Democrat and former Presidential candidate urged his followers on Twitter to vote for his wife on "Cleveland's Dancing With The Stars."

"Please vote for Elizabeth and ask your friends to do the same. Vote early and vote often!!" Kucinich wrote.

Elizabeth Kucinich joined the show because she's "always wanted to dance" but "never had the confidence to do it before," she told Newsnet 5 in Cleveland.
